About me

Hi, I am Carla. 

I’m a Charity Leadership Coach with over 20 years’ experience in the sector. I help clients leverage their strengths to achieve personal and professional goals through solution-focused coaching.

For me, fostering a positive and collaborative rapport between coach and client is paramount in achieving meaningful progress. Here’s a glimpse into who I am:

  • Credentials: I hold qualifications in Personal Performance Coaching to ICF standards, complemented by accreditation in DISC Personality and Communication Preference Profiling.
  • Experience: With over two decades immersed in the charity sector, I’ve dedicated the majority of my career to spearheading intricate operations aimed at addressing health and social challenges, ultimately enhancing the quality of life for countless individuals. This includes over eight years as CEO of a prominent national patient organisation, where I orchestrated successful change management initiatives.
  • Team triumphs: Yes, there were remarkable victories, but they weren’t without their hurdles. Leading through challenges is where true growth unfolds, and I completely understand the complexities charity leaders navigate.
  • Collaborative spirit: I thrive on collective synergy, having collaborated with remarkable individuals across various boards and committees, all united in pursuing positive global, European, national, and local impacts.
  • Commitment to growth: Lifelong learning fuels my passion, underpinned by certifications in Positive Psychology, Holistic Coaching, and Effective Work-Life Balance strategies.
  • Motto and values: Embodying a ‘Positive Polly’ outlook, I approach life with an energetic, glass-half-full perspective, grounded in curiosity, courage, authenticity, and humor.
  • Authentic connection: I pride myself on being empathetic, approachable, and refreshingly candid. With me, authenticity is key, to fostering relationships built on trust, respect, and open dialogue.

If you sense a resonance with my approach, I invite you to reach out. It would be my privilege to collaborate with you on your journey towards realising your personal and professional aspirations.

Let’s embark on this transformative journey together.
